What is the dividing line between:
The wiki says a track must be suitable for farm vehicles, but it's a
rare bridleway that is only wide enough for a horse, and not for a small
tractor or 4x4 type vehicle.
Which taken logically would mean that highway=bridleway would hardly
ever be used. But it's a useful indication for map users when rendered
-- in the UK at least a bridleway is almost always a public right of
way. Whereas a way rendered as a track is often private. The standard
renderings for a track differentiate between surface conditions, but not
Does a track require actual evidence of recent vehicular use? The wiki
doesn't say so. And must the vehicle be motorised? For example if the
